Devin from CHUD has been doing some digging, and he claims to have come up with a bunch of different plot points, character descriptions -- what have you -- with regards to the highly-anticipated McG flick, Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins (aka Terminator 4). Some of his notes, however, don't exactly match up with what the film's producers told Entertainment Weekly recently. According to CHUD, they say John Connor (played by Christian Bale) is "barely in the movie." Whereas the producers told EW that Connor "is an ongoing, very central character throughout the next trilogy. He's leading the fight for salvation of humanity against the machines. So he's very important." CHUD says Connor's role is "apparently bigger in the sequel," but that the real central character is a dude named Marcus.

Here's how CHUD describes the involvement of both Marcus and Connor: "Marcus was put 'out of commission' before the nuclear holocaust on Judgment Day and he wakes up about 15 years before the future we see in the original Terminator films, which puts the movie at about 2015 or so. Marcus is a bad ass - think along the lines of Riddick - and what he finds is a blasted world filled with horror. Radiation poisoning, starvation, rampant jaywalking - all the things you expect post-apocalypse. There's also John Connor, who is trying to build a utopian society while running the human resistance." The site goes on to describe the action sequences as "HUGE" and claims there are some battles with the T-600s. You can read more about the flick -- including some spoilers -- over at CHUD, and lets hope Devin is right when he says this film "could be epic." I'm not so sure the name McG and the word 'epic' belong in the same sentence, but you never know ...
